Imogen, Eliza, Claudia and...?

We've just found out we're expecting DD4! Complete surprise, as we weren't trying to conceive, but that's another story! Anyway, now we're completely stuck for names!

We already have an Imogen Charlotte, who's 16, an Eliza Juliet, who's 14, and a Claudia Eloise, who is 11. Ideally, we're looking for a girl's name to go with her sisters' names, but not be too matchy-matchy IYSWIM.

We like timeless, elegant names that aren't likely to date very badly, preferably classic but not too old-fashioned, while still being strong and feminine-sounding.

Any help would be much appreciated as we're completely at a loss!

Margaret, Helena, Felicity, Arabel, Clara, Beatrice, Sorrel, Aurelia, Rosalind, Jessica, Carys.

I could go on. I wish I'd had 10 girls.

All the best

What a lovely collection of names you have! I think Harriet would go really nicely

Your daughters have lovely names. I think another consonant to begin with. How about:
Tabitha
Henrietta
Jemima
Melissa
Zara
Sarah

Thank you all!

I'm loving Annabelle - but I'm not sure if it's a bit frilly compared to the other names? On the other hand, I don't think Annabel is quite as pretty... Anna on it's own has always been one of my favourite names, but is it a bit boring or short compared to her sisters' names? I also love Emma, but again, same issue. Thoughts?

Matilda is absolutely lovely, and Tilly is a sweet nickname. I think Heidi, Emily and Miranda are a bit outdated for me, but that could just be because I went to school with a couple of each. Lovely names, though.

Choccy - I love almost all of those names! Aurelia is such a beautiful name but my best friend snapped it up last year before I could! Likewise with Felicity and Clara. Arabel is also nice, but I think I prefer Arabella, but then is that a bit flowery?

Hm! If only this wasn't so hard... Thanks for the suggestions, though, please keep them coming!

Three new replies as I was typing!

Annabelle has been suggested quite a bit - I think I'm really warming to it! I like Alice but I like Alicia more, and I think that's too similar to Eliza.

Rose is lovely, only it's already taken by a very close family friend. Saffron is quite cute, but I don't like the potential nicknames of Saff and Saffy - I don't think it's really for me.

Please keep them coming!
